Customer Question
It's me again about...

It's me again about Rufus - for some reason I wasn't able to get in to see the answer to my question.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What sort of animal are we talking about?

I just sent you a question about Rufus eating the lining of a meet carton. His name is ***** ***** is an English bull dog about 6 yrs old and weights about 70lbs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Maybe I'm confused. I thought you had a problem with a pet. Is that correct?

Yes, it is a dog and I just sent you all the information about it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with Rufus?

Like I said he ate the lining of a meet carton - it is black plastic and has some kind of paper inside. He seems okay now but just was wondering if I should be doing something.

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if Rufus will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rufus?

Pearl, I have already told you all of this.

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind?l What type of meat was in the container? How long ago did this happen?
